Cartersville

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, this beautifully restored Victorian mansion, now owned by Bartow County and operated as a house museum, was once the home of nationally renowned evangelist Samuel Porter Jones, for whom Nashville’s Union Gospel Tabernacle (Ryman Auditorium) was built. In 1978, following a drive by local citizens to save Rose Lawn, the home was purchased by Bartow County and developed into a museum to house the writings and memorabilia of Sam Jones and Rebecca Latimer Felton, another Bartow Countian distinguished for her role in history as the first woman to serve in the U.S. Senate. Open 10 AM- Noon and 1-5 PM Tuesday-Thursday and Friday 10 AM-Noon. Rose Lawn hosts weddings and special events on weekends. Admission: Adults $7 and students (12 & under) $2.
